Signdance Collective International presents

Carthage

by
Caridad Svich

Directed by Ornella D’Agostino Carthage explores the impact of language difference on those displaced and isolated by slavery, human trafficking and forced migration.

Caridad Svich is the lifetime achievement winner for the Village Voice NYC.

It is a monumental work for this internationally renowned writer.  www.caridadsvich.com

  'Signdance is the perfect company to interpret the piece because they move between so many registers of language: spoken, sung, and embodied in their specific fusion of dance sign and theatre'. No Passport NYC
